My good friend and colleague John is teaching the American Revolutionary War to our 8th grade students. He wants some unique resources and ideas to help him engage all of his learners. Below is a collection to help him get a jump start. Several resources represent untold stories left out by traditional history books (i.e. the contributions of women, African American Patriots, and Hispanic Patriots). Many of these resources will allow students to choose the things they want to research about the American Revolutionary War. Project ideas are to engage different types of learners.
